Thrifty Tangerine

Tangerine is the color of the season! This spunky tangerine, purple and light pink shirt buttons up the front and has a ruffle on the bottom! I got this shirt at a thrift store for $8. The jeans, purse and necklace have been pictured on previous posts. The sneakers are Coach and I also got them at a thrift store for $30! They were hardly worn! Crazy! The bracelet and earrings I got at an antique mall. An antique mall is a large store with separate booths/rooms. Each booth or room is rented out and the occupant sells items on consignment to the mall. The bracelet is vintage and it was $8 and the earrings were $.50. When you buy vintage jewelry, sometimes there is some oxidation or discoloring on the jewelry. One way to clean it is with Crest toothpaste and a toothbrush. You will be amazed how clean and shiny the piece of jewelry will become! Not all oxidation or discoloration will disappear, but most will. The sneakers have purple details on them which match the purple in the shirt. The earrings also have purple and light pink on them to match the shirt. The bracelet brings out the gold on the purse. The total for this outfit is $71.50.
